    Good morning, I have contacted my main supplier of parts, they do not supply LG...unfortunatly I was unable to locate this part...I would contact LG for a parts dealer local to where you live and get a cold control...please note that the cold control may be built into the control board which may be why i am unable to locate it, the control board ran for around $250 - $300.



    I hope this helps...If I can be of any further assistance please feel free to comment again.

My refrigerator doesn't cool


Hello,
The answer to these questions lies in the way the freezer/fridge combo works. The freezer is where the cooling coils are located. Then air is moved over the coils and circulated through the fridge side by a small blower or fan. The problem arises when the air is not circulated for some reason.

The reasons the air is not moving is usually two reasons
The fan or blower has failed.
The coil is covered over with ice and blocks the air flow.

The first reason is pretty simple to fix, you simply replace the air circulator and things are good again.
The second reason can be more difficult.
1. The timing device that runs the defrost cycle of the refrigerator is defective.
2. The heater coil that melts the water is shorted or not working

Usually the first thing to check is the heater coil. If there is resistance through the coil then most likely it is still good.
The timing device can be an advanced defrost control board or a mechanical timing device.
If the heater coil checks out to be good then the problem should be the timer.

For most situations, unplugging the refrigerator and allowing it to defrost on it's own will get you going temporarily, till parts can be shipped to you. That will melt the ice and give you a few days or a couple of weeks till it ices up to the point where it will not work again.

So you can see here, the problem can usually be traced to one of three things.
The fan or blower
The timer device
The electric heater coil
By methodically checking these parts you can isolate your problem and fix it.


Hoping that this will solve the problem of the refrigerator....

FRIDGE/FREEZER KEEPS FREZING UP


Did you check or replace the defrost timer? It could be a solid state type built onto a Printed Circuit board or could be a timer motor, it all depends on the model and make of the freezer.

Refrigerator not cooling freezer works fine blower motor in rear of unit on but turning slowly


Since the freezer is fine, you are in good shape. Pull off the back cover inside the freezer to inspect the evaporator coils. You should see a light frost pattern. If it is heavily frosted, then you have a open heater element - located at bottom of evaporator. If heater is good and you have heavy frost buildup, replace motherboard and thermistor which is clipped to the top of the evaporator.
